they work wonders these things.

i have one on my dovii tank and it keeps the water nice and clean.

i thing i did learn was to have both your outlets on the end caps - its far easier to seal them and there is less f..... around when your drilling holes.

im actually in the process of building a 3 stage one of these using 150mm piping.

ill post some pics when im done.
